Steve Jobs officially announced his retirement from his world-renowned company Apple this week. What does this mean for Apple? Not much exactly. It will still continue to be a Steve Jobs company. Steve Jobs has been involved since its inception, but has taken numerous hiatuses the last several years due to illness. In dealing with his absence, Apple worked on training a replacement who could eventually fill his place when Apple’s creator steps down.
This comes a little over a month before the big launch of the iPhone 5. He will continue to be involved with the company but is relinquishing his CEO title to Tim Cook who was hired by Apple in 1998. Jobs will continue to be involved in the company and will remain chairman of the board. Watch Apple continue to evolve as an innovative company with the guidance of new individuals continuing Apple’s inexhaustible success.
